Short of driving a car you may not have had much experience with vehicle transportation before, and depending on what you need delivered the process can vary in difficulty. Whilst you can undertake a vehicle move yourself it can be costly to hire a trailer and suitable towing transport, not to mention the need for goods in transit insurance and special licenses required to transport bigger loads.

For these reasons it can be cheaper and easier to employ the services of a specialist vehicle transportation company. Moving something like a scooter or quad bike only requires a small trailer or van; whereas transporting a tractor or large plant machinery takes a great deal more planning and a far more specialised service.

Which kind of vehicle delivery service you’ll require is essentially dictated by two things:

1. What type of vehicle are you moving?
2. Does the vehicle run?

Getting vehicles ready to move

There are a few general guidelines to follow when getting any vehicle delivered that will help avoid disputes and make the process as smooth as possible:

Details and documents: Make sure you have all the appropriate paperwork to hand when transporting a vehicle, especially if distance-selling.

Clearing: Make sure you remove accessories and valuables from the vehicle as these likely won’t be insured. Also secure or remove things that could potentially come loose during transit.

Running condition: Make notes of the vehicle’s performance prior to transit; this will allow you to note any changes when the move is completed. Also make sure fluid and fuel levels are adequate if the vehicle will be driven during transportation.

Cleaning and exterior: Cleaning your vehicle, be it car or caravan, will help avoid damage caused by dirt rubbing the paintwork. Also it will allow you to notice any scratches or scrapes that occur during the vehicle delivery.

Evidence: Photographs and an inventory before your vehicle is picked up are a great way to prove any damage was incurred during transport.(If you need specific information on moving different vehicles find them over to the right)
